The loaning iconic jewellery for monuments occasions is something that happens a lot in the royal family.

Britain's Prince Harry and his fiancee Meghan Markle have chosen an east London bakery to make a lemon elderflower cake for their wedding in May, Kensington Palace said on Tuesday. Claire Ptak, owner of the London-based bakery Violet, has been selected as the lucky dessert maker, and she sounds like the ideal woman for the job.

The pair have reportedly shunned a traditional fruit wedding cake for their nuptials in May in favour of an organic lemon and elderflower version, created by one of Meghan's favourite bakers. Although they were previously rumoured to have been considering a banana cake for their wedding dessert centrepiece, it has now been revealed that the couple have chosen a lemon elderflower cake that aims to capture the "bright flavours of spring" and will be decorated with lovely fresh flowers. Both Prince Charles and Princess Diana, and Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, served fruitcake at their reception.

Markle and Harry will have two receptions on their wedding day. Both receptions will be closed to the public.
